Q: What New Years Blogging or Writing resolution have you placed on yourself?

I recently decided to make The Paperback Princess solely a book blog, predominantly for YA books but I do also review other books out of this genre. My Blogging Resolution this year is to take a more professional approach towards this blog.

Steps taken towards my resolution:-
  • Re-designing my blog
  • Subscribing for my own domain name (still in the process of choosing)
  • Contacted several amazing Authors who were happy to participate in blog interviews...stay tuned for those as they'll be coming with fantastic giveaways!!!
  • Purchased blog planner so I can ensure my posting are regular
If you follow and comment on my blog, I will definitely take the time to return the gesture. Thanks for taking the time to read my blogging resolution for the year and Good Luck to all your resolutions.

Great list! My blog is new and is now on Beta mode, I always thought the design should be the easiest part... wrong!

Hopping through. Sorry you're having trouble with the linky. It's working fine for me. Sometimes this happens and it's happened with several people tonight. Reload a few times or give it a few minutes. That usually fixes it. Cross fingers!

Hi from a new follower! Wonderful resolution! :) I want to be more like that with my blog, too. I re-designed today, though, so hopefully that will help!

Here's mine:

Hi Angelica,

thank you for stopping by my blog. I completely changed my blog layout and design a couple of months ago and started planning posts and blog tours more carefully. But there's always more to be done :)

I'm an old GFC follower. Best wishes for the new year :)

What fantastic goals. I, too, want to take a more professional approach, but I'm hoping that will come with experience and practice (and networking of course!)

Thanks for stopping by. Following in return via Twitter


Unknown said...

Thanks everyone for visiting, I also appreciate the blogs that I've already followed and commented on for noting that in their comments above, makes it much easier for me :D

@ Valen - Sorry, I'm in the process of redesigning and the new blog won't be dark at all.

For those that are commenting and following me for the first time, I've also gone and returned the favor.

Unknown said...

Great set of resolutions. I had my blog redesigned about a month ago by a friend, who I must say, did an awesome job. The clicky feather was added by her so I can't tell you how it was done, but I'm glad you like it.

Thanks for stopping by my FF.

I actually like your blog design. Thank you for following me on my blog.

I've thought about buying a domain name too. I just don't know if it's what I really want to do. We'll see.

Lyra said...

Hi Angelica! I didn't know you were Filipina! Anyway, I already follow you here on blogger (I guess I must have joined a past giveaway of yours or something), and the same goes for twitter. My username's @lygill - feel free to tweet me whenever. I'd love to chat! :)

Unknown said...

Good luck with your resolutions! I've been thinking about changing the design, but just can't find the time right now.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Following you now! :)

Unknown said...

Why doesn't Blogger allow you to "reply" to each and every comment :(

Autum - wish you were too, I've found a few designers that I like but only 2 were still designing, and they're waiting list was too long.

Jennifer - Pls link me to the blog planner you bought.

Miss Knight - Thanks! This is a free design by Rachel @ Parajunkee...the host of Feature & Follow Friday, she's got a site specifically for web designing.

Lyra - Looking forward to chatting xoxo

Rain - Are you going to DIY your blog design? I really wish I was artistic enough but alas I'm quite impatient and wanted it done ASAP so hired someone LOL

Emily said...

I'm trying to decide if I want a unique domain name or not, so I know how hard it can be to choose! You just want it to be perfect before you settle. And thank you for visiting/ commenting on my F&F Friday post :)

Louise said...

Good luck with your resolutions! I'd want to get a new blog design too, but I don't know what I would want.
